"Error searching for attachments from Confluence. The server may be unavailable." when searching images to attach to an edit page

Hello all,
When I try to search for an existing image to add to a space (edit>insert image>search) I get the error message "Error searching for attachments from Confluence. The server may be unavailable. "

The main search works fine and finds the image I am looking for, so it exists in the system. Also, the error message is constant for every query.

I guess it is something wrongly configured, but what? Thanks for the help!

I got the same error message after uploading a mistakenly named file (I screwed up in Photoshop, saving a PSD file with a PNG extension).

Removing the misnamed file solved my problem.

You should look in the Confluence application log for any related errors/exceptions - this will help us identify the cause of the problem (see https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Working+with+Confluence+Logs)
